Following the coronavirus lockdown, many families in Langholm have decided to spread some cheer to their neighbours by drawing colourful rainbows and displaying them on their windows and some on their walls.
Rainbows are used as a symbol of peace and hope as they often appear when the sun follows a heavy rainfall. They serve to remind us that there is hope and light to follow even after dark times.
Ava and Murray Cubbon saw some rainbows in windows so decided they would like to do some for their friends and neighbours. They’ve made seven in total and have loved seeing everyone’s reaction when they pass them on. The rainbows make people smile while they are walking by.
